    Previous reply was meant for paws @220. Paying insufficient attention to the reply link I clicked!...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    The use of "British" was carefully considered. The dismissive and contemptuous attitude to the Irish and Republic of Ireland publicly shown by Johnson, Westminster and sundry Little Englanders is shared by more than a few denizens of Northern Ireland (and...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    I do think we have to give the writers credit for maintaining thematic consistency across 100's of seasons in regards to the British attitude to and treatment of Ireland and the Irish....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    And, for a look at how far adrift the DUP has come from parts of its base, not just maintstream Unionism and popular NI opion, there is this opinion piece in the News Letter (the Daily Express of Unionist news...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Phew! Just back from spending a few days dodging US and UK agents, former IRA volunteers, disgruntled members of the DUP, and assorted other crazies! It's been fun. Cowsheds and byres are suprisingly cozy. (Note: Do not fall the sheugh.)...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    It’s interesting to watch them fall into many of the usual traps (including a number of glaring factual inaccuracies) when discussing NI, and then present their new found knowledge as brilliant insight and “front running”. Certainly shines a light on...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Specifically in Northern Irish slang (although understood across the island), “tout” means police informer. (Of course, seeing as I’m some kind of US-British super-spy, I probably shouldn’t know that!)...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    That was of course a reply to anonemouse. I forget to click the "reply" link....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    *needs like button* (And previous reply: If it wasn't so hilariously obvious that they have no idea who I actually am or anything about me, I would be treating the threat a lot more seriously. I have nothing but weary...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    All that nonsense (2195 to 2202, 2204, 2206, and 2207) cheered me right up! Either not aimed specifically at me (you know, the usual excuse), or tilting at imaginary windmills in the hope of some kind of reaction. Whichever it...

    For the latest Irish border related cockwomblery from the Johnson regime: https://mobile.twitter.com/tconnellyrte/status/1178760377678618626?s=21...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Personally I doubt any solution could possibly be dumber than the problem: People willing to start a fight over the name of a city. It’s prettt damn ridiculous when you stop to think about it rationally....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Ah, if only it were that simple! Sadly the problem isn’t the literal meaning of the name, it’s the cultural and historic baggage....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    My last word on this matter (if only to document the absolutely hilarious and ludicrously convoluted flip-flopping the “mick” insult has resulted in): — It doesn’t matter if it was an insult because I didn’t think anyone was reading it....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Since people have been discussing this, a quick guide to the common names of NI’s second city: Derry — about 70% of the population of NI will happily call it this, with at least another 10% to 20% distinctly unconcerned...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    I accept that there was something posted that was labelled as an “apology”, I am II sure of its true intent. Either it was an apology offered by someone who can’t actually see why they needed to apologise; or it’s...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Hm. I think there may be a genuine attempt at apology somewhere in there (slice out the condescension, contradictory excuses, and “I’m sorry you were wrong” bits next time). I do not do “shadow banning”. My mind and my eyeballs...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    The bigot speaks......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Apologies for being a bit sharp or hasty with you there. Personal insults and general mockery I have no issue with (I’m wearing my big boy pants, someone wants to call me a fucking idiot, no problem), but I absolutely...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    How very true. If we were all just a little more tolerant of raging bigots, tried to understand them, showed them a bit of sympathy and compassion, then everything would be better? Or maybe just tolerate them because they said...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Having sat on this and contemplated for a few hours, here's a little thought experiment for everyone. Suppose the poster @1999 (who shall from this point be referred to as the Anti-Irish Bigot) had posted any of the following (and...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Nationalists and Unionists like to paint a border poll as a simple issue. The reality is of course for most (North and South) it will be shades of grey and not a simple decision at all. (I also like to...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    There have been people shouting about Wrightbus/Corenerstone/Green Pastures questionable practices and allegations of dodgy dealing for years. But, DUP heartland & big money. What do you think the chances are of any politicians within shouting distance suddenly developing a spine...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    And while it's water of the proverbial to me (I've been better insulted by better people *this week*), I would like to draw the mods' attention to post #1999. Especially the last few words....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Bill, I hate to break it to you, but you're being played for a sucker by someone with the emotional depth of a damp pavement and the insight of a slightly concussed badger. I know you won't listen to this...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Oh dear. Some brief words of advice: – Check who wrote what before trying to mock someone for something they didn’t write. Makes you look a bit of a pillock otherwise. – Don’t try mockery using words you don’t understand,...
  • Commented on Normal service will be resumed eventually
    Apologies! Previous comment was of course meant for the Brexit thread. If there’s any way for the mods to move it, it would be much appreciated....
  • Commented on Normal service will be resumed eventually
    Jesus H Christ on a crutch! Johnson stood in Parliament this evening and said: “the best way to honour Jo Cox is to deliver Brexit”. Moral vacuum hardly seems a sufficient description....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    The latest I've heard (people with good insider contacts) is that JCB made a firm offer to take over the company, but the Cornerstone Corporation won't sell the site and buildings -- they want to retain ownership and charge rent....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    (Is Paisley being sensitive to the classic route to holding your seat in Irish politics - plenty of people saying "he looked after us when" round elections - as believable as him wanting to keep the cash supply coming?) While...
